Use 1 1/4 inch Kreg screws to attach each of the four legs to the square beams you just created.
Create base for plant
Cut two pieces of wood 6 1/2 inches long and two pieces of wood 5 inches long and drill pocket holes into each short side of each piece.
Attach plant base
Then attach the two short pieces to the interior of the two long pieces and attach that whole thing to the legs of the stand, approximately 4 inches up from the bottom.
Cut roof pieces
Cut four pieces of wood with 45 degree mitered sides, with the length of the long edge being 5 3/4 inches long.
